Colin Farrell and his girlfriend Kelly MacNamara have split after five years together, according to reports.
The Irish actor, 46, and personal assistant are thought to have been driven apart due to hectic work schedules.
News of their separation comes after Kelly, who works for U2 guitarist The Edge, hasn’t been seen with Colin for some time.
A source said: ‘Colin is the man of the moment in film thanks to his role in The Banshees Of Inisherin. He spent months working on that along with the last Batman blockbuster, where he played Penguin.’
They added to The Sun: ‘Colin’s schedule took its toll on his relationship with Kelly and they quietly called it quits.’
The insider assured there is ‘no bad feeling’ between the pair but ‘upholding a romantic relationship when your work schedule is so demanding became difficult to juggle.’

While his love life remains largely private, Colin has spoken about his relationship with Kelly, whom he started dating in 2017, before.
‘My girlfriend, she travels a lot as well with work so often times we’re two ships passing in the night,’ the Oscar-nominated star said.
‘But we make sure to find a port that we can, you know, rendezvous at.’
Colin’s previous romances included actresses Lindsay Lohan and Carmen Electra.
It is also reported that he had a fling with Britney Spears in 2003, after the singer admitted they shared a kiss.

‘Yes, I kissed him ,’ the Toxic songstress once confessed.
‘He’s the cutest, hottest thing in the world — wooh! But it was nothing serious.’
Meanwhile, Colin is a father to two children.
He shares eldest James Padraig Farrell, 19, with ex-girlfriend Kim Bordenave and his younger son, Henry Tadeusz Farrell,13, with Ondine co-star Alicja Bachleda-Curús.
Gushing over his kids in the past, the movie star said his sons aren’t a fan of him playing the villain, whether it’s Lord Percival Graves in the 2016 hit Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them or The Penguin in 2022’s The Batman.

In fact, James and Henry aren’t too fussed on his acting at all.
‘They’re sick of me being a bad guy,’ Colin said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. ‘Which apparently, reading between the lines, leads me to believe that they think I’m ok.’
He later told People that him joining the Harry Potter universe wasn’t a massive deal for his offspring.
‘Not at all,’ he said when asked if the role made him a ‘cool dad’.
‘I’m just as boring and frustrating as I ever was,’ he joked.
Reps for Colin Farrell have been contacted for comment.
